    Lathe Upgrade - Product Gloat, but not Price Gloat

    I am happy to have my new lathe in it's final home. I have some ballast to add and will have to workout moving it an inch here and and an inch there, but no more excuses...

    Whoo Hoo!!

    I have the DVR 3000 and like it very much.

    On the XP they made some good upgrades!

    When the buget allows, get the extention bed, makes a BIG diffrence, I'm sorry I waited so long to get one for mine.

    Just the ease of moving the tail stock out of the way is worth it!

    Now you are cooking with gas!!

    Thomas congrats on the new lathe. You are going to like it. I just got mine a month and a half ago. I just love the thing. Now get it dusty and post some pics.

    Nice lathe! I currently have an old Rockwell Beaver but the Nova DVR XP is on my shopping list. It would be great if you (and Bernie!) write up a review of your experiences with the lathe.
